I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Benefits are decent; definite decline in options over last 3 years; salary is average to below average. Company is large enough to where employees feel like they have job security but in reality job security doesn't exist

Cons

Beauracratic, slow moving and very siloed. If you are a caucasian male with white hair (or balding) performing isn't necesary for promotion

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop promoting people that tell you what you want to hear so much; the same white haired, male caucasian employees gets promoted over qualified others to frequently. The scary thing is with all of the accolades and awards on diversity there is one black VP and one latino EVP out of 50+ executives within the utility?? How embarrassing is that??

    Steady company with great people to work with in an "Office Space"-like environment.

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Competitive compensation and benefits. Room to grow.

    Cons

    Old school punitive systems drive the wrong behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out in the field more - you are over reliant on scorecards. Servant leadership style is working but needs to be adopted by more high level people.
